A great resource for writing about research:  A Field Guide for Science Writers:  The Official Guide of the National Association of Science Writers.

2)  Know the background behind the study;
3)  Find a skeptical source who will temper your initial excitement about a study;
4)  Figure out who is going to benefit from the study.
